As a condition to your receiving an Award pursuant to the Krispy Kreme Holdings, Inc. Long-Term Incentive Plan (the Plan), you must execute this Irrevocable Proxy Agreement (the Agreement).
By entering into this Agreement, in the event that you receive any Shares pursuant to the settlement of Restricted Stock Units, you hereby irrevocably grant a proxy to, and appoint as your proxy and attorney-in-fact (with full power of substitution), the persons from time to time serving as the principal financial officer and as the principal legal officer of Krispy Kreme Holdings, Inc.
